About CSL Bellingham

Our Mission

A loving, supportive community that teaches and practices authentic spiritual living.

Our Vision

Inspiring all who come to expand their inner connection to Spirit.


If you are searching for a spiritual community where you are respected and accepted for who you are, and if you want the inspiration and support to grow to your highest potential, the Center for Spiritual Living Bellingham invites you to visit and to explore new possibilities for your life.

We honor all paths to God/Spirit and can help you experience a personal relationship with It. When It is the focus of our spirituality, then other areas of our lives fall into place: we are happier, we can do more for others, be better stewards of the Earth, and help bring peace and harmony to the world.

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

– Howard Thurman

CSL Bellingham was founded in 1988 by Reverends Colleen and Bob MacGilchrist. In 2008, we changed our name from “Woodside Spiritual Center” to “Center for Spiritual Living Bellingham.”

If you are looking for a warm, dynamic, loving community of like-minded people, we encourage you to visit Center for Spiritual Living Bellingham and claim the life your soul is seeking.


The Center for Spiritual Living Bellingham is an affiliated member of Centers for Spiritual Living™ – a global community comprised of more than 400 spiritual communities, teaching chapters, study groups and other ministries in 30 countries. These communities teach a New Thought philosophy that brings religion and science together and offers spiritual tools to transform personal lives and help make the world a better place.

This is done through the study and practice of Science of Mind® and Spirit, also known as Religious Science®, which holds that all life is sacred — that each human being is an expression of God/Spirit/Love. We believe in Cause and Effect and teach that “it is done unto you as you believe.” In essence, our thinking and expectations create our reality.

Our teachings incorporate the ancient wisdom of spiritual traditions through the ages. People of all spiritual paths — Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, Hindu, Muslim, and others — are welcome. We help people experience a personal relationship with God/Spirit/Love; promote a community of acceptance, understanding and respect; provide classes, programs, prayer and meditation; and advocate a safe spiritual community of people interested in living a spiritual life.
